Life Lately, in Photos

on

I had another car accident on Tuesday night, my 4th in the last 4 months if you include when Carlos’ neighbor backed into my parked car. Sometimes, when everything is going right, I feel like I’m amazing for being able to live in Mexico by myself. But then, something like a car accident happens, and I’m reminded of how fragile I am, that I need God and the people around me a lot more than I thought I did.

I clearly remember asking God for more humility a few weeks ago. I guess if his answer to that prayer is putting me in a neck brace (see the last picture) and making me totally dependent on others for my transportation for the foreseeable future, I really can’t complain. Whatever it takes to get through to me!

Despite the challenges, Mexico continues to be fun, beautiful, and a dream come true. Here are some pictures of what I’ve been up to lately:

My car after Tuesday. Between my sister and I’s wrecks combined, it’s a wonder this thing is still running.
